Demonstrating that he has significantly more patience with simply outrageous behavior, Steve Hays has responded once again to Holding. One has to wonder when you simply give Holding the last word and find another path upon which to walk. There seems no means to reason with those who are infallible in their own minds. Here are Hays’ responses: #1 #2 #3. As a result of this extensive correspondence, I will surely be staying very focused upon solely the exegetical facts of the meaning of “mercy” and the issue of the “negation idiom” and will only use Holding’s claims as examples to move into an exegetical discussion.
